Vijay Iyer in conversation with Simon Rentner

Ahead of his 2019/20 Residency, Wigmore Hall’s 2019/20 Composer in Residence Vijay Iyer invites Simon Rentner into his New York home to talk about the different aspects of his residency.

Together, the two discuss each of Iyer’s 2019/20 collaborations and how he answers the question of his musical “origin” and heritage. Iyer addresses the concept of improvised vs composed music, and the overarching term of his residency, ‘musicality’.
